Wenatchee Meet n Greet thread: Sign up here!

In the "Entiat Spot message" thread, and in Hangar14's "Wenatchee/Entiat/Chelan" thread, there have been posts about 'Hey let's meet up.....' So let's DO IT!!

Here's my idea: this Saturday (October 15) at the Red Robin in Wenatchee... say, 6pm?

Post up if you're coming.

That sounds pretty good. Does it have to be Red Robin? It has became sort of an inside joke with my wife and I that I have never been in a Red Robin. It has been an on going 15 year joke. I would hate to break the trend now, but if I have to,I will. If it is a good place to go, I am up for it.
There is a little Mexican place downtown, I think it's called Taco Loco. Anybody like that place?

I am 80% sure I can make it. Saturday at 6:00 is a long time from now. I can't say for 100% sure until Friday afternoon.

Only if you hunt the modern rifle season. I bowhunt, so I had forgotten that. Thanks for reminding me.

So, is anybody interested in this?

We're a tentative yes, but could we change the venue? My wife and I lost a good friend in a tragic chimichanga accident at El Porton.

I am new here, so I don't have much reference as to where a good place is. You guys decide and I will go.

Are you riding that Guzzi? I love that model, I built a very very nice engine for one a few years ago. I have an Ambo and a Monza, but I will probably ride my Multistrada.

I love any Guzzi.

Yep, though I think I'm done riding for the year. I had knee surgery today today and any free time I have after I'm healed is dedicated to finishing my deck before it starts to snow.



El Porton is just fine. Welcome to NCW

Well, crap... should have checked the calendar. This Saturday is SortofWife's birthday. Me not being present = bad. So, after trying to get this off the ground, I've gotta bail.

I got a good PM from TailGunner who hosts a MAG in his area. Several good points, one of which is that he's had better luck getting people to show up on weeknights, another is that it should be a place that will let you move tables around as group size increases. He's had as few as three or four show and as many as 25 IIRC.

I'm still interested in getting this going, even though I can't make the first one.

So if we do it on a weeknight, what's everyone's preference? There's a great place in Cashmere that has AYCE tacos every Tuesday and is very flexible. We could meet there any night of the week and they'll let us move tables.

That sounds good. Week nights are better for me too. A morning meet for coffee and an easy group ride could prove interesting. Maybe Lonepine and ride Badger Mt.? Killer pastries at Lonepine, and good coffee too.

Tacos in Cashmere sounds good to us. Our best nights are Monday through Thursday. Name the night and time and we'll be there!

Each group has luck getting folk to show up in different ways. The Spo./Cda group doesn't have a regular meetup day/night. We haven't had much luck with weeknights other than if someone is in town from out of area. We go different places all the time, different times and different days. Someone posts a date, time and place and people either show or not but the least number we have had show up is three. We also don't get together much during the summer/riding season and middle of winter/cabin fever season we get together a lot more.

Good luck with getting your meetups started and ignore Pickle you have a long way to go before you can be as disfunctional as that group he hangs with.

Well. I'll be at Mojos on Tuesday then. I'll be there by 7, unless I have to work until then. I'll be there by 7:30 anyway. There's a few local shooters and we're usually there.
